Well, whereas I can agree with you that publication could be
beneficial, you have to grant that no one should be told when and
where to publish. It's a simple privacy issue and there are
definitely two opposing points of view involved.

Don't believe the rationalisations, consider instead the individual
objectives. Who are the real contributors and who are the limelight
seekers? Plan 9 seems to be resisting a swing from elitism to
communism. Who will gain the most from the swing when the reality
check shows that it has been from a meritocracy to mediocrity?
